    Bolivia ready to launch biodiesel plant

    This plant will produce ecological diesel and will have established a certain mixture with fossil diesel for its commercialization,” said Arce

    Bolivian President Luis Arce Catacora announced that his country's first biodiesel production plant will start operating next week in Santa Cruz de la Sierra. Although some experts have doubted the project's worth, the Government said that the new undertaking would generate up to US$ 100 million in savings on fossil fuel imports. Supreme Decree 5135 authorizes the addition of up to 25% of vegetable components to conventional fuels.
